TCL 6 series Roku TV (2018)

When it comes to this line of Roku TVs, our David Katzmaier says it best: "With superb picture quality that rivals TV costing twice as much, TCL's 6 series is the best TV value we've ever reviewed."

The 55-inch model can be found on Amazon for $629.99, while the larger 65-inch model is $989.99.

This inexpensive TV has a high-end look and feel

Roku TV is baked in to the TCL 6 series, so the user interface is simple to use. And it has more apps (and 4K HDR apps) than any other smart TV.

Plus, the new-for-2018 design scraps the old plastic look for a more high-end metallic finish.

There are plenty of improvements over last year's model

The new 2018 design on the Vizio M-Series includes a slimmer border on the outside and a built-in, over-the-air TV tuner on the inside. There are more local dimming zones than last year's design, too.

Vizio P-Series (2018)

CNET's David Katzmaier says the Vizio P-Series offers "excellent picture for the money," with deep blacks, rich contrast, plenty of brightness and excellent video processing. The true 120Hz refresh rate input, meanwhile, is a welcome feature for gamers.

If you like smart TV, you'll want to buy a Roku with this one

While the Vizio P-Series delivers the best picture you can afford without going OLED, the built-in Chromecast smart television interface leaves something to be desired. The 55-inch Vizio P55-F1 is available through Walmart for $798.00.

Sony Bravia XBR-49X900F (2018)

With minimalist styling that's a cut above budget models (per David Katzmaier's review), deep blacks, accurate color and excellent image quality, the 49-inch XBR-49X900F ($998.00 at Amazon) makes a great choice for Sony loyalists.

The Bravia has one of the best built-in smart TV interfaces

The Sony Bravia XBR-49X900F has Android TV built in, which we find to be a step above what you get with Samsung, LG and Vizio. It responds well to voice commands, too, though it can be slow to respond.

Vizio E-Series (2018)

Praised by David Katzmaier for "the best image quality available in this price range, thanks to local dimming," Vizio's E-Series delivers great contrast, especially in dark rooms.

Clunky style, but a killer price point

The biggest knock against the Vizio E-Series is its somewhat outdated, clunky look. And we're not in love with its lackluster, built-in streaming, either. But at $729 for a 65-inch screen, it's still a great budget alternative to the Vizio M-Series and TCL 6 series.

TCL 5 Series Roku TV

Perfect for those looking for a sleek TV on a small budget, the 4K TCL 5 Series is a definite step up, stylistically, from the less-expensive TCL 4 Series. We also love the simple-to-use Roku smart TV interface.

TCL 4 Series Roku TV (2017)

What's this? A 2017 TV on a list of the best TVs you can buy in 2019? Nope, it's not a mistake. The TCL S405 series offers "good enough" 4K picture quality at the ridiculously inexpensive price of $349.99 for a 55-inch screen.

Easy to use, easy to love

And the Roku-based user interface is very simple to use, delivering tons of apps that update regularly. Netflix, Amazon Video, Sling TV and others are front-and-center and just a remote shortcut button away.
